Hadn't thought of that. I need to know the number for licensing purposes - I'm buying Tivoli client licenses, and the pricing is per CPU.
I ran the "dmidecode -t processor" command that someone recommended - it brings back 2 entries for "Central Processor" - I'm assuming those are the entries for the CPUs?

How can you tell how many processors a server has? I always thought
that you could look in /proc/cpuinfo, but we recently had a Dell tech
here that said that was incorrect. One of my servers shows 4
in cpuinfo, but he said the box only has 2. So, what is the correctwayto tell?
